4.0 out of 5 stars A very useful book!, 15 Jun 2001
By A Customer
This book clearly and in an understandable way covers all you need to know about all the elements used to create a good screenplay. I have found the information on layouts and genre to be particularly useful as well as the way in which the author provides examples of films (and a few script extracts) for all of his points. As a beginner to screenwriting I have found the information in this book useful and it has increased my analytical skills in looking at various scripts that I have brought. It has also furthered my appreciation of screenplays. This book would also prove useful to those with more experience of screenwriting as it offers advise on polishing up your screenplays and on seeking employment as a screenwriter. The author does not give you all the answers with what to write, explaining that it is the writer's own approach to style, genre etc which gives the screenplay a sense of originality, but gives examples of various sources you can use to come up with ideas and how best to develop these into a good screenplay. It makes an interesting read and gets you thinking about areas you may not have considered before. Thumbs up.
